McConnell And McCarthy Want To See The FBI’s Documents On Trump

( )- The current Gang of 8 members requested access to the FBI’s records collected during the Mar-a-Lago search. A year and a half after President Trump left office, the DOJ and FBI have yet to explain why a raid on Mar-a-Lago was required to obtain papers. Additionally, the DOJ and White House have lied time and time again about their involvement in the historic attack on the residence of their main political rival.

The raid happened despite the knowledge that DOJ and Trump’s officials were openly collaborating on their current smear campaign against the president.

Chuck Schumer, Mitch McConnell, Senator Marco Rubio, Nancy Pelosi, Kevin McCarthy, Senator Mark Warner, Adam Schiff, and Rep. Mike Turner are members of the Gang of 8.

According to two sources with firsthand knowledge of the request, the group of congressional leaders tasked with evaluating the most sensitive intelligence data has requested access to the records taken from former President Donald Trump’s home in Florida from the Biden administration.

As senators from both parties look to discover more about the historical investigation into the former president, the so-called “Gang of 8” has launched an inquiry. Additionally, it implies that Congress is not ready to stand idly by as political and legal repercussions following the FBI’s investigation of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Florida, on August 8.

It comes in response to a similar demand made by Gang of 8 members Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, and Mark Warner (D-Va.), chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee. They asked the nation’s top intelligence official to compile an assessment of potential national-security risks associated with Trump’s handling of the sensitive documents.

The Senate Intelligence Committee’s spokeswoman declined to comment. The Office of the Director of National Intelligence’s representative declined to comment. While acknowledging that legislative oversight is underway, a Gang of 8 member’s spokeswoman said that not all eight lawmakers had agreed to a particular proposal.

The Gang of 8 and its staff frequently request certain information from the intelligence community in methods that don’t always need the consent of all eight members.
